Should the need arise, I can provide hppa buildd horsepower. I (pretty
much) know how to run a buildd, thanks to lamont, and I can give
root access to my cluster to whoever (provided minor trust checks)
needs it (lamont already has it).
Time is definitely something I have very little control over nowadays
tho, but I'll try my best ;P
 unless it has significantly changed in the last couple years: I
ran the first autobuild effort for hppa ubuntu, and I'm currently
running hppa/ia64/alpha autobuilders for debian-multimedia.org
